Future of the Environment

Listen to the article

Forests are essential to climate, biodiversity, and livelihoods. Halting deforestation and restoring our forests is critical and urgent if we want to ensure a sustainable future.

How can we act now to scale-up protection and restoration of the world’s forest?

At COP26, world leaders promised to end deforestation by 2030. To reach this goal, deforestation efforts need to scale-up and overcome the barriers it faces. To be successful, credible, inclusive and high-quality solutions are needed.

The purpose of this session is to discuss how to scale-up forest protection and restoration, with the following objectives:

  • Discuss the existing barriers in scale up action and impact
  • Present different pathways to drive change and increase impact
  • Highlight opportunities of collective action and innovative solutions which are driving the change towards reducing deforestation across the world

Watch the livestreamed session on this page on Monday 21 March at 14:00-14:45 CET.
